I WANT THAT

We become who we are.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IoO5nkxT_4&feature=kp

On the sales table I have the pleasure of hearing every conceivable excuse.
 People claim they don't want to travel and experience new things.
It's just not a priority......until it's too late !

 You can't judge a book by it's cover,
 but you can by it's first two chapters and most certainly by it's last.

Have you ever sailed across an ocean ?
On a sailboat....surrounded by sea......no land in sight ?
Without the possibility of seeing land for days to come.
To stand at the helm of your destiny.....I want that one more time.


I want to feel the surge during the running of the bulls in Pampolona
I want another meal at an outdoor cafe' in Paris.
I want one more night of Jazz in New Orleans
I want to walk on the wall again.
I want to be enveloped in the serenity of the Lincoln memorial at night.
I want another bottle of wine......then another. 


I want to feel the warmth of a womans skin against mine
in an open air cabana in Key West at sunrise.

I want to climb the tower....ride the river...stare at the frescos.
I want to sit in a French Quarter courtyard and read one more good book.

Most of all I want to sleep.
I want to sleep like I slept when I was a boy.....Just one more time.

I WANT THAT

Product of Legends

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.
-Elanor Roosevelt-

It's said that the world was built on legends.
 And that legends are a way of understanding things greater than ourselves.
 Forces that shape our lives, events that defy explanation.
 Individuals whose lives soar to the heavens or fall to the earth.

This is how legends are born.


The Myth of Experience

People think, the more experience you have the better you'll be at something.
This is only sometimes true.

In the world of sales and marketing for example,
 it's easy to find people with twenty or more years of experience.
What if they have two decades of experience but only one of learning ?

I see this at martial arts camps all the time. 
Joe Lewis would often voice his disappointment to me
 about different practitioners who were like this.
On their resumes though, show they have alot of experience !

Some times the teacher, 
always the student


Many people go through their careers and lives doing the same thing the same way.
The people who get ahead are the innovators, trail blazers. 
Not, imitators who get by with repeating the old ways of doing things.   



Take responsibility for change within yourself, and your life.
If you fail, try harder in NEW WAYS.
When unforseen circumstances come into play,
embrace them and try something else.

You don't need more experience ........

You're ready NOW  !!

What you need is more COURAGE !!

Don't ask me to remember


Don't ask me to remember,
Don't try to make me understand,
I'm confused beyond your concept,
I'm sad and sick and lost,
I can rest knowing your with me,

All I know is that I need you,
to be with me at all cost.

Our Government is bought and corrupt.
It uses the courage and valor of the men and women in it's service to be 
'The worlds bully'  to serve it's own twisted agenda.
Yet, I will always take of my hat, put my hand on my heart,
and salute our service persons for their willingness to fight and protect
our constitution and the liberty of others.
Joseph Camppbell said it beautifully:
 The term hero is thrown around more often than it actually should be,
but you will know a real hero when you see one.
They are people who do something for the greater good in an unselfish act..
Three great forces rule our world:
Stupidity Fear and Greed.
-Albert Einstien-
